Thank you to all parents and teachers who have shown an interest in our school garden. It is going to be a wonderful experience for our school and everyone cannot wait to get started. Given the interest in the project several parents have asked if I would be willing to host another informational session, and I am very happy to do so. I will be hosting two additional parent information sessions on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 6:30 pm and on Tuesday, April 15, at 9:30am. At this meeting, I will present an overview of our school garden project and a call for volunteers to help start the first phase of our garden project, preparing the site. We need several parents who have the experience, the motivation and perhaps the tools to dig a small area to build two raised beds. Once we have a team of volunteers I will set a date for the work to begin. Any parent who is interested in helping with this first phase can email me at email@example.com or plan to attend the meeting to learn more about our garden and to sign up to be a volunteer. Thank you to all families for your support and encouragement!
